LOS ANGELES, July 15th, 2022 – Wilshire Law Firm is thrilled to announce the addition of Senior Partner John Yslas to the firm. John joins the growing Employment Class Actions and Complex Litigation Group and will handle select single plaintiff matters.
John brings a unique perspective and experience – before joining the Wilshire Law Firm, John was a Partner for many years and held major leadership roles in the international AmLaw 100 law firms of Foley & Lardner, Norton Rose Fulbright, and Seyfarth Shaw. Now representing plaintiffs, John has found his purpose:
“I am thrilled to join the plaintiffs’ bar, and particularly the renowned and growing Wilshire Law Firm. I will continue to be poised and reasoned and the passionate advocate I have always been. To seek justice and protect employee rights is my true calling as an attorney and a proud Mexican American.”
John is a highly skilled litigator– successfully prevailing in lengthy cases involving multiple parties and millions of dollars. With over 25 years of experience since graduating from UCLA Law School in 1996, John has litigated countless wage and hour class actions and single and multi-party matters. He is also known as a truly determined attorney dedicated to creatively achieving the best possible results for clients.

“I feel a deep and personal responsibility that gives me great joy to seek justice, to mentor others, to foster community connections, and to do my humble part in hopefully opening doors for others.”John Yslas
